No More Muddy Watercolors Class Starts April 15, 2015
Registration Closes Monday

Peeling Paint - Watercolor on Arches

This class is for students who have taken Watercolour for the Absolute Beginner course or for artists who have some experience with painting with watercolors.

During the class will be creating realistic watercolor paintings full of detail, form and rich colours. We will focus on different techniques including layering transparent glazes, using opaque and transparent colours, colour mixing, dry brush techniques, wet on wet texture tips and more.  Students will have the option of working from their own photos or working along with me as I complete a painting from the reference provided in class.

This will be my last watercolor class before summer break starts on the 15th and registration closes on Monday.

Quick Little Project for My Absolute Beginners Acrylic Class

Acrylic on Bristol Board
This was SO much fun to do! I have not had the time to play with acrylics over the past couple of years and did not realize how much I missed them.  Since I am now teaching acrylic classes at Port Moody Arts Center, I have a much needed excuse to get back to acrylics and play.

I am pleasantly surprised how much texture and depth could be achieved with only three layers and so simply.  Of course, if left to my own devices, I would add several more layers and still might...must step....away....from....studio.....must....

But for the class tonight, this is where the project will end off..  I just did a easy flower drawing to keep things simple but the possibilities are endless with what one could create using these techniques.

I am so looking forward to playing more tonight!
